A Small Selection of the Chilli Seeds Now Available

Aji Dulce Chilli Seeds (Little to no heat)

A heatless Habanero. Medium-sized, bushy plant (40cm high) with fruits very similar in look and flavour to Habaneros, but with little or no heat. Good for chilli sauce with no heat, but all that Habanero flavour.

Harvest: Pick when they turn red – about 95 days from potting-on.

Heat: none to very little

Contents: An average of 20 seeds per packet

Aji Limon Chilli Seeds

This heavy cropping and easy-to-grow Peruvian variety grows into a large, drooping plant with fruits 6-8cm long that ripen to bright yellow. The fresh fruit has a distinctive citrus flavour.

Due to its dropping nature, this plant is a good choice for a hanging basket and for growing outdoors.

Heat: 40,000 – 60,000 SHU.

Average contents 20 seeds.

Anaheim Chilli Seeds

Anaheim Chilli Seeds

Size: SEEDSANA

Price : £5.60

ADD TO BASKET 

Also known as the ‘New Mexican Chilli,’ this moderately hot fruit is deep green, turning red. Very smooth fruits, 18cm long and 4cm wide on tall (50cm), productive plants that offer good foliage cover for the fruit. Excellent for stuffing.

Harvest: Pick when fully grown – about 65 days from potting-on.

Heat: 500 – 2,500 scoville units.

Contains an average of 20 seeds per packet

Bhut Jolokia Chilli Seeds (20 seeds)

World’s Hottest Chilli.

These plants need 6 months of tropical temperatures to fruit so you should only plant them in spring unless you have hydroponic equipment and artificial light.

The Bhut Jolokia (A.K.A. Naga Jolokia) was officially measured at over one million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) in 2006. For the test report from the Chile Pepper Institute,  click here.

Being three times hotter than an Orange Habanero, our suggestion for cooking with these chillies is to use a small amount, very finely ground (dry or rehydrated and reduced to a paste). As a rough guide, try ? of a pod per person for a hot dish.

These are the most difficult chilli to grow due to erratic germination times and length of growing season. They need patience and warm conditions from March through to October to ensure a good crop. Try pre-soaking in diluted Chilli Focus liquid plant feed over night – we’ve found this reduces the germination time by 50% to about 10days.

Heat rating: 10!/10

Average contents 20 seeds.

Note – Image shown is a dried Bhut Jolokia sitting on a light-box. Fresh fruits are a dazzling red – see the image on the product detail page.

£5.60

Big Jim Chilli Seeds

The largest of New Mexican varieties, this chilli has pods up to 30cm long that weigh as much as 100g. Their size makes them a favourite for chilli rellenos. Plant 50cm high.

Heat: 500 to 2,500 scoville units

Average contents: 20 seeds

NFT Gro Tanks

Unrestricted access to oxygen – without the need for a timer.  

Available in various sizes.

Our Gro-Tanks give roots virtually unrestricted access to oxygen. Yields are typically 3x bigger than if growing in pots.

Plants are placed in rockwool blocks and the roots grow along the planting channel benefiting from superb access to oxygen.Nutrient solution is constantly pumped to the roots, there’s no timer to programme.Because virtually no growing medium is used there’s nothing to transport or throw away at the end of the season.

Zero waste – the only growing medium used is the rockwool block the plants were started in. This means there’s less chance of disease and less waste material to throw away at the end of the season.

3x Bigger Yields – The constant supply of water and nutrients directly to the roots combined with unlimited access to oxygen means plants are healthier, faster growing and produce 3x more yield than if grown using traditional soil methods.

Healthier plants – plants are never under-fed or over-watered and there is no build up of salts in the root zone.

Get more out of a small space – Gro-Tanks are just 20cm tall and there’s a system for every tent size!

 

NFT stands for ‘Nutrient Film Technique’, a very shallow stream (or film) of water containing dissolved nutrients is constantly pumped past the bare roots of plants. 

The main advantage of the NFT system over other hydroponic methods is that the plant roots are always exposed to a perfectly balanced supply of water, oxygen, and nutrients. In every other method there is a conflict between these requirements, the optimum amount of one results in an imbalance of one or both of the others.

The secret to NFT’s success is that because very little growing medium is used a thick root mat quickly develops, the upper surface of this root mat is always exposed to the air (so the roots have superb access to oxygen) and the roots are always moist with water and nutrients.

This means that plants have access to the optimum amount of water, oxygen and nutrients all at the same time. The result is higher yields of high-quality produce and a longer period of cropping.

A properly designed NFT system must have the right channel slope, the right flow rate, and the right channel length. Our NFT systems took many years to perfect, it’s no wonder they are Europe’s best sellers.

 

Golden Rule – Ensure plants are root bound before they go into the system. An abundance of white roots should be visible on the outside of the starter media.

• As a rule of thumb: 1 plant per square foot. This can be increased or decreased depending on plant variety.

• Pump runs for 24hrs. No need for a segmental timer or feeding schedule.

• Completely remove plastic wrapping from rockwool cubes or remove pots if using soil or coco. This allows the roots to access more oxygen.

• NFT is a bare rooted growing technique. All but the smallest of plants will need additional support, i.e. yoyo’s or pea netting.

• Cut lengths of spreader mat long enough to allow an overhang of a few inches from the channel into the tank. No trickling water sounds!

As with all hydroponic systems the reservoir should be emptied and replenished every 2-3 weeks to maintain a perfect balance of essential nutrient elements. This is easy to do – just reverse the pump and attach it to a length of hose.

 

Various Sizes of NFT are available.  Below is a list of recommended systems for various tents. All of the NFT systems come with a kit which includes, pump/s, spreader mat, PH tester and PH down, and irrigation bits as required.
